“Sage was the catalyst for much of my success today. The fostering environment created by staff and educators challenged my every step and pushed me to discover my limits while exploring endless possibilities. Sage allowed me an affordable education, the opportunity to travel the world, and to always have a place to call home. “

“The professors I had at Sage sincerely cared about their students personal growth in their respective fields and genuinely wanted them to succeed. Without the study abroad opportunity and the professors I had at Sage I don’t know if I would be the painter I am today.”

“The Sage faculty stood out as teachers that truly cared about their student’s education. I finished out my degree at Sage and felt like I learned more in a semester than a year at any other state or private school I had attended. It’s where you end up that makes the rest of the journey worth the risk.”

“When I first arrived at Sage, I was a very quiet person. I learned to speak my mind and not be afraid of what others will think or say, and at the same time learn to take constructive criticism to help me further my creativity. Sage was definitely my stepping stone in finding myself as an artist and becoming an adult.”

Sean B. McGiver

Photographic Collage Artist/Professor of Art
The School of Visual Arts
New York, NY

“I remember developing my first role of film in the darkroom during Linda Morrell’s class back in 2003. Her words of encouragement and the creative exploration in that class set me on a crazy path that I am still navigating. In 2004 Sage sent me on a scholarship to study in Paris and it change the way I will forever look at Art. Sage has played a large role in my career and I am grateful. Thanks Sage!”

“I always looked forward to getting to my classes at Sage. I was supported and nurtured in a way that made me feel comfortable expressing myself as an artist, but at the same time I was challenged and pushed to try new things, experiment and make mistakes – all in knowing there was a reason for doing so. Having the opportunity the past two summers to be a part of the Sage community/faculty and has been one of the most enjoyable experiences for me at Sage.”
